To build a simple EggBot
The OpenBuilds ACRO System was developed to be the most accurate and cost effective positioning system in its class.The ACRO System incorporates the OpenBuilds V-Slot system and, therefore, has the unique ability to expand to multiple sizes creating a size configuration custom to your needs. Choose the size that best fits your workshop.This versatile system allows for precise positioning of many different mountable tools and attachments.
The UltiBots CB3030 CNC uses C-Beam, V-Slot and an extruded aluminum T-Slot work table. This allows 6mm T-Nuts, step clamps and blocks to secure materials to the work surface. The all metal design makes the use of a mister possible.

Yet Another Chinese Linear Rail CNC, my first one, doing this mainly for the fun of building it more than using it.
i?ve designing this laser taking care of every part to be functional,This laser has Endstops mounts on the corners and the X axis both sides too.The corners has fasbelt tension knobs for easy operation.The laser mount has adjustable knob to manually rise or down the laser for focusing purpose.all the parts have been printed at 65% infill a 2 perimeter lines just to make the parts stronger.Attached you will find a part list with quantity and link where to buy.SIZE 1mts x 75cmBuilt area
DIY design and build of a roughing 2' by 3.5' CNC router
Hey all looking forward to sharing this build, I’ve learned a lot reviewing many of these great builds.
So for my senior project I decided to build a CNC router.I kind of need to get this done before May so we'll see what all goes down.It's going to be a 3 axis machine (for now) and will be able to handle 4x8 sheets of wood. This is my first build. It's going to be intresting..
In this project, I show you how I built my DIY CNC machine. All moving parts of the DIY CNC router are running on ball bearings while the structural parts are made with natural materials, namely birch plywood and solid beech wood.
Super solid core xy build inspired by the e3d tool changer
Based on D-Bot but used more metal bracing / openbuild plates instead of plastic parts.Also size was increased.
SLA resin printer based on a gen3/4 iPad Retina display. The design intent is to create a printer with the highest resolution possible with a lower cost of entry compared to DLP projector based SLA printers.
First time build of the Lead 1010 CNC with the High Z add on.
A new design of my based on a couple different machines I have seen both on openbuilds and youtube. In the end will have a and X/Y workspace of 1250mm x 1000mm and a Z axis range of about 200mm.
Behemoth cnc router build in progress using hiwil rails and closedloop servos.
A 1000 by 1000 CNC Router with linear rails and a control box.
Building a larger C-BEAM CNC Machine with no previous experience.
I know this build is a little off category here at OB, but I wanted to share it with the community (as well as other coffee lovers) and show however vast the possibilities are when OB hardware is involved. This is a powered stand intended to operate a manual coffee grinder. It is compact, light, portable and uses simple drive components (B&D Cordless Screwdriver). I will post two version, V-1 (Beginner skill level ) and V-2 (Intermediate skill level). Both accomplish the same results.
The Openbuilds BlackBox is a new system evolved around a set of subsystems that cover more than just control and also more than just CNC type applications! With a plug-and-play easy connection system this controller can be used with ease, without sacrificing power.
Some of the things that I have done to my 1510 WorkbeeInstalled Linear rails and bearing blocks with drawings.Installed Ops consoleMade conversion plates for extruded aluminum to castersExtended z axis travel by a couple inches with steel plates.As of now in the process of installing Lead screws across the 1500mm length.
The High Z modification for the LEAD CNC brings your creative capabilities to new heights! With 8" of clearance this modification can be adapted easily to your existing LEAD CNC Router.
How to build an Independent Dual EXtruder (IDEX) 3D printer from OpenBuilds parts.
Heavy DIY plasma cutting table
Iadded the steel to create a less flexible milling surface to make heavier cuts in aluminum. I can also do light steel cutting now as well. I wish OpenBuilds made a steel and rail version of these kits.
Hi everyone, im new to the world of lasercutters but i have been granted access for a Trotec laser for a while with old firmware and only compability trought Windows XP. Then i decided to build my own laser, with some easier workflow and support for Windows 10. Since im still a student i have limited resources, so i will try too use scrap parts as much as possible. I will publish photos and updates during my build continously. Gladly taking advices from others.

A log of my "brain surgery" on a Cricut Expressions 2 to change the control board to something open so that I could cut what I wanted.The ESP32 GRBL board I used has bluetooth and WIFI built-in and was very easy to get working just the way I wanted.
This is my first build attempt, a large form (4x4ft.) 3 axis 4-motor CNC router table, .The build components are Baltic birch plywood, stepper motors, SBR linear bearings, and ball screws, LinuxCNC, Mesa controller.
This is a rework of a previous build I did on here, a mostly printed cartesian CNC. Initially intended to just be an update to that, but so many things changed including the linear motion and every single part has been modified significantly that I felt as though it deserved a whole new build.
The OpenBuilds Lead Machine takes us back to the roots of the OpenBuilds modular building system, and has proven itself as an adaptable design that can compete with any machine in its class!
This will be my second CNC build but this time a proper CNC not a small desktop model that I played with for a while to learn Gcode, It was great but now its time to start playing with the big boys and girls.
Modifying the K40 laser cuter stock gantry in favor of OpenBuildssuperior and smoother movement. Also will provide me a better level control for easier beam alignment.
This EggBot design has a perfect functionality (the same as the original EggBot professional), a perfect cable and microcontroller arrangement, and a perfect cost as it uses a minimum list of parts (with one V-Slot Linear Rail size20mm x 80mm and length 500mm you can build 3 EggBots!)

Vslot rail system at work again,laser cutter/engraver rotary device for cylindrical objects .
My First major improvement was changing the controller to a Acorn board. I loved the way a dedicated userinterface was speeding up my workflow.Next project my Y Axis. On Aliexpress I ordered a couple of 16mm ballscrews and some lineair rail. Before I took my gantry off I quickly made some aluminium profiles to fit my carriages. Withouth any doubt these improvements where worth it
This example build shows how easy it is to make a linear actuator using a few OpenBuilds Parts.
